We are so excited to premiere a new show on BTR! A brand-new comedy show! Political Comedy! Called Drunken Politics! Hosted by Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny! Listen Here!
On the debut episode of Drunken Politics, Allison and Jamie interview Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader, and give their final recap of the 2008 presidential election, along with advise about how to make sure your vote isn’t stolen. Other topics of discussion include the War on Drugs, Jamie’s attempt to scam his way into the KKK, and Allison’s undying hatred for New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. Lastly, a final fuck-you farewell to George W. Bush, and a separate fuck-you to the mainstream media for giving us George W. Bush.
These new BTR DJ’s are great. But seriously, don’t take our word for it:
“Jamie’s unique style of stand up is artfully thoughtfully and powerfully funny. His balls are so big that must be where he keeps all the funny!” Paul Provenza Creator and Director of The Aristocrats
“Kilstein, is to me eerily reminiscent of Bill Hicks and not in the sense of an astute impersonation but as if we are witness to some sort of Second Coming. Eloquent intelligence, razor-sharp wit and unconventionally convincing arguments. Kilstein is a special talent and one that I feel privileged for having seen at this early stage of his career.

-Doug Stanhope, Comedy Central, The Aristocrats
